Kuiper’s “phenomenal” day ended literally the word after he proclaimed it as such, and he did issue an apology later in the game. ESPN’s headline regarding the gaffe called the (Freudian?) slip an “apparent racial slur,” and I’m unclear as to how it could be any clearer.


My guess is a lot of people didn’t know who Glen Kuiper was before Friday night, and you know he’s wishing for some of that sweet anonymity right about now.
